Over the Fence - A Week in Farm Photos

This week (February 11th - 18th) has been busy here at Elm Ridge Farm. I've been editing the upcoming issue of Backyard Poultry magazine. I'm proud to say it's looking great!

It's been a week of wild weather, from cold to warm. Now it looks like we're going into a long stretch of 60-degree weather in mid-February. Amazing! We may even break some records. My only concern is that the plants are starting to wake up. If that happens and we go back into cold weather, that could ruin the spring bloom. But, no sense in worrying about things you can't control! I'm just planning to enjoy the weather. No snow equals no snow shoveling, and that's a good thing!

Enjoy the photos and video below from my week!

For Valentines' Day, I treated the flock to leftovers from a crab leg lunch. They loved picking out all the leftover meat and happily munched on the shells too. Leftover seafood can be a great source of protein and calcium.


FOX SQUIRREL

This Fox Squirrel visited the tree outside my office and didn't like our cat below. He's too big for a cat, so he really had no worries. But he spent a lot of time yelling about the cat. Lol!




SIGNS OF SPRING

Hellebores, or Lenten Roses, are early bloomers and mine are getting ready to open. 


TREATS FOR CHICKENS

Lemon the Easter Egger and Sheila the Black Australorp certainly enjoyed their treats. 


A #TBT TO SUMMER 

All summer, the hens and rooster enjoyed picking from my Rosemary plant on the patio table. With the upcoming warm weather, I'm going to put it out there for some fresh air and for the hens to enjoy once again.

AN OFFICE RABBIT

Roxy loves to play in my office. She likes to play hide and seek with me under my filing cabinet.
